Windsor Road is located in the Hamilton, New Zealand suburb of Maeroa.  It was named in 1917 by New Zealand Home Builders, the owners of the property.  There is no documentary evidence to indicate why this street was named Windsor Road, but it was probably named after Windsor Castle in England.  (HCC) (HCL) (Lands & Surveys)
